Hurray, My I/O linc arrived on Saturday 10th!!!
The good news is that its setup and in place. Setup was a breeze since I’m literally replacing two X10 products for one. I love it!
So the wiring is the same
Here is my Garage contact I purchased separately before, now as part as a kit.
Since the top part is so light I ended up using Velcro so I didn’t need to drill holes.
Now the I/O Link
As for the hook-up its very straight forward and the on-line manual has a very good description of this. My recommendation is use the individual strands of a CAT 5 cable, they fit perfect.
Here i’ve connected in my garage door sensor. (Click to magnify) – Green cables
Below I’ve connected my ‘momentary’ switch to the back of the garage opener. (You do have to setup your I/O linc to do the momentary relay before which is the “C” setup).
This is done by pressing the ‘SET” button 3 times x 3 times for a total of 9 times. Double check on-line just to be sure.
Orange is my Open/Close wires to the Garage and the green are my sensors
Here is the box setup next to the Garage opener. Since there is no space for the I/O linc I had to set it up next to the opener. Plus I didn’t want to put it flush with the device since it vibrates a lot.
Now each time the device Open’s I get the “11 FF” message and when it closes the “13 FF” message. But i still haven’t figured out
how to read the sensor yet. Once I get those details I’ll post part 2.
Here is how the linking process works. It’s done both ways (like a 3-way switch)
* If you want to monitor the garage status AND use a keylink button you NEED to link then both ways,
1.First open your garage door.
2.Starting linking your I/O link to the KeyLink Key or switch
3.to have the switch control your garage then Link Keylink key and then then I/O.
4. This way when you press the key it open/closes as well as the button lights up when you open the door and close it. 🙂
